Added DiffLines:

* DamnYouMuscleMemory: The hotkeys change from game to game. For example, the original game had G for the pistol and changed it to Q for the ''Beyond The Call Of Duty'' standalone expansion, before switching back to G for ''Men Of Courage'', though hotkeys can be customised. Worst of all was the removal of hotkeys altogether for ''Destination Berlin'', which many players found added FakeDifficulty.

* NonindicativeName: ''Commandos 3: Destination Berlin''. [[spoiler: There is a mission in Berlin, but isn't the last of the game. The Berlin mission is the ending of the first campaign and occurs in late 1942 or early 1943, the last mission of the last campaign is set on a Normandy beach during the D-Day.]]

Added DiffLines:

* NonLinearSequel: The games aren't set in a short specific span of time, but each of them cover the whole duration of the war, and a purely chronological timeline of the Commandos' missions would require to merge the four games:
** ''Behind Enemy Lines'' starts in 1941 and ends in February 1945.
** ''Beyond The Call of Duty'' starts in 1940 and ends in December 1944.
** ''Men of Courage'' starts in 1941 and ends in August 1944.
** ''Destination Berlin'' starts in 1944 and ends the 6th of June 1944.

* AllGermansAreNazis: Played totally straight in ''Destination Berlin'', to the extend that briefings and cutscenes dialogs only refers to the German as "Nazi".

* CutsceneIncompetence: The opening cutscene of the "Saving Private Smith" mission (''Men of Courage'') ends with three commandos of the team (of four members) captured by the German after doing what the player usually does (sneaking and stabbing).

* JackBauerInterrogationTechnique: The German are seen beating the captured Green Beret and Sniper in the Soviet Union mission.
* MacGuffin: The relic in the first half of the Russian part of the game. The only information given to the player is that the Strike Force must retrieve it from the German.

* AmericaWinsTheWar: Averted mostly in the original games. The team is a special unit of British army. The Green Beret is Irish, the Sniper and Sapper are both English, the Marine is Australian, Natasha is Russian and the Spy and Thief are French. Only the Driver is American and he is removed from the third game.

* MultinationalTeam: Despite being in the British Army, the commandos consist of an [[FightingIrish Irishman]], an [[AmericaWinsTheWar American]], an [[AwesomeAussie Australian]], two [[LaResistance Frenchmen]], a [[SensualSlavs Russian]] and only two [[BritsWithBattleships Englishmen]].

* AmericaWinsTheWar: Sort of. The team belongs to American special forces, but only one theme is American (the tow others are British and German).

* ActionizedSequel: ''Destination Berlin'' puts much more focus on {{Big Badass Battle Sequence}}s (especially the Battle of Stalingrad and the obligatory Normandy Landings sequence) then its predecessors. It's telling that the new features added involve all the Commandos now being able to use grenades and mounted machine guns, auto-use medical kits and the Green Beret's ability to [[RemovableTurretGun carry heavy machine guns]]. To a lesser extent, this trope is in play in ''Men Of Courage'' with a couple of missions involving [[HoldTheLine standing your ground against enemy assaults]] and the ambush ability that carries over into the third game.
